Do Need a RAID card for this MB?

I was wondering this MB by Asus says it is RAID compatible but does it mean that It has a built in RAID card or do I have to purchase one? I am trying to set up a RAID 0 with 2 1TB HDD so any answers would be much appreciated :)

  1. Most likely built-in RAID hardware, or software-based RAID functionality. In any case, you're better off using a dedicated controller.

    According to the mobo specs on Newegg, that mobo has onboard RAID...

    Storage Devices
    PATA 1 x ATA133 2 Dev. Max
    SATA 3Gb/s 7
    SATA RAID 0/1/5/10

    So, no, you will not need a dedicated hardware RAID controller to put your 1Tb drives on RAID0.

    You can get a dedicated hardware RAID controller but it will not offer any performance gain over the mobo RAID.
